Thank you, Namaste Nomad and Mohan, for an epic trekking experience of a lifetime to the Everest Base Camp (EBC). The planning process was straightforward with timely and accurate communication from Mohan. He was quick to answer our questions which inspired great confidence in the company. We knew that we were in good hands. Mohan and his team made every effort to ensure that we were all safe and that everyone achieved their goals of reaching EBC. He documented the trip along the way and posted photos and stories on social media, which was comforting, enjoyable, and informative for family and friends at home. The food is clean, healthy and delicious, and was carefully prepared to provide perfect fuel for our bodies throughout the trek. The company is also very eco-friendly as they bring all plastics and rubbish down the mountain for recycling. While we were enjoying the amazing Himalayas of Nepal, Mohan and his team expertly handled the daily logistics of travel and lodging. Mohan’s familiarity with the region and its ever-changing weather patterns paid off as he was able to adjust our daily treks to maximize the experience and breath-taking views of the Himalayas. He always had a Plan B! And, a big shout-out to the Sherpas who are all skillful climbers and very friendly. The company provides duffle bags for the trekkers which helps ensure that the Sherpas only carry up to 48.5 lbs. each! Namaste Nomad truly cares about their clients and ensures that they get the most out of world-class trek. Highly recommended!

Trek of a Lifetime

Himalayas, they are beautiful, intimidating and challenging. You might think they are perhaps to hard for you? Well, they are hard, but in our everyday life we are often very comfortable. We need to be challenged from time to time to remind ourselves that we are more than our houses, jobs and what others think of us. I needed that break and challenge two years ago. I joined Mohan and his team on the journey to Everest Basecamp. And lets get the boring (but important) stuff out the way. The team is as professional as it gets. We had the nicest food, best accommodation and best guides. Mohan created atmosphere of community and support. I often looked at other groups (that probably payed 2 or 3 times as we did), and they did not had the service and the fun that we did. But apart from all of the pragmatic stuff, they are the Himalayas themselves. My choice was to abandon the internet altogether (its there if you need it) and enjoy being there. For two weeks, the world forgot about me as i forgot about it. All i cared about was walking. It was like a meditation, an it was simple. Just one foot after another until we reached the destination. Mohan does expeditions the way they should be done. He cares about your spirit, what you eat, what you drink, how you sleep. He knows that those things will get you there and help you with the altitude. His team is supportive, and very experienced. I will be a repeat customer one day, and not once.

What can I say about Namaste Nomads, just Excellent. From start to finish, everyone that we dealt with were helpful, professional, caring and accommodating in what we wanted for our adventure. Itinerary changes were no problems. The advice we were given before we flew out to Kathmandu and all through the trek were invaluble in making the trek a success. We were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel and met by Ashim who checked us in and explained about the rest of the trip. We met our guide Dawa (5 times Everest summitier). So much experience from all the Namaste Nomad staff. The trek was fantastic and Dawa (guide) and Sudip (sherpa) looked after us throughout. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Their advise from what to eat and how to cope with the altitude was invaluble. The porters who carried our bags were efficient and our bags were always at the lodge well before we arrived. When we got to EBC a change to the itinerary was discussed with us. Dawa suggested we climb Kala Patthar that afternoon and see the sunset over Everest rather than seeing the sunrise early in the morning. What a brilliant suggestion as we saw Everest on fire. If you want to do trek in Nepal then check these people out. I would not hesitate to go with them again. Already planning a trip in 2020 with them.

Everest Base Camp Trek

I had the pleasure of recently being part of another wonderful trip to the Himalayas - Annapurna Base Camp - with Namaste Nomad - a wonderful small business. There are so many reasons I would always choose Namaste Nomad over any other company. Most importantly it is a true Eco friendly organisation, everything is accounted for along the treks - food, water and waste. They are also Animal friendly and only use porters for transport. This is better as it is providing more jobs for locals, and removes any animal cruelty that can occur only the trek due to pushing yaks or donkeys too hard, too far and without adequate food or water. The food during my trips was phenomenal! If you listen to Mohan and the rest of the guides you are guaranteed success at altitude. Vegetarian, local and fresh food are on the menu. Everyone can live without meat for a couple of weeks...you most definitely don't want to be eating meat in a country that doesn't do health and safety and the food has to be transported on some ones back and could be 4 or 5 days before reaching its end destination - your plate. I have never felt safer on a trip in a foreign country than with Namaste Nomad. The sherpas, porters and guides are all local and have been with the company for a long time. They are all courteous, respectful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable - many of them having submitted Everest and other Himalayan peaks many times over. Everything is taken care of from your first interaction with Mohan. Flights, hotels, transport food, etc. The cost is the best value I have seen - even better value than most as the experience you are getting is unbelievable. As if that wasnt enough, Namaste Nomad also helps out small, local people and communities around Nepal with fundraising and charity works. If you want to raise money to give back to some of the communities you know that it is going directly to where it is needed and not into the pockets of charity CEOs. Don't listen to me any more, just book a trip with Mohan and see for yourself!

Another incredible trip with an amazing company

After meeting Mohan briefly in Donegal I soon signed up to join him his team and 10 other travellers to trek Nepal's Langtang valley. Best decision ever! From the get go when we all met at Dublin airport the level of organisation and planning Mohan had put into this trip became clear. After hassle free flights Mohan had arranged for a local taxi company to meet us at the airport keeping the group together making for stress travel to the hotel, the hotel selected also was to a high standard with everyone's needs catered to. As part of our trip Mohan had arranged for Cultural shows, dinner booking and buses to Kathmandu's heritage sites including a local guide. Allowing us to make the most of our time in this culturally intriguing city. Then it was on to the trekking bit! after the 8 hour bus journey to the mountains we where treated to dinner cooked that the hotel by our guides and porters this was to be the case daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was excellent and more importantly the level of food hygiene Mohan requires these guys work to more than meets any western standards, out of 11 people no one got any food related sickness unlike some people we met on the way who where travelling with other companies if only for this reason alone I couldn't recommend Namaste Nomad highly enough. While on the trek the scenery was simply stunning where the true beauty of the Himalayas is apparent. Making the trek all the more enjoyable was the level knowledge our guides had on the area, plants and animals, and they where only to happy to impart this on us. While being the real professionals they where also great company through out. For most of the group including myself it was our first team at high altitude, and the focus on everyone's safety from Mohan and team was very evident. Something we all found extremely reassuring allowing you to enjoy the trek knowing that you are in good hands. In turn giving us the confidants to make the optional climb to 4800m an experience that will simply leave you gob smacked with a real sense of achievement. After this we made the trek back down through the valley which was an absolute delight with everyone on a high after what had been an unforgettable experience and achievement. With another couple of days to spend in Kathmandu it was a great way to round off the trip. I have already signed up to trek to Everest base camp in September 2019 and that in it self is properly best recommendation I could possibly give.

October 2016 Everest Base Camp... I went with Namaste Nomad having looked at other companies based in Ireland doing the same trek. Mohan was always available to answer questions. He himself has trekked to EBC lots of times which is reflected in his knowledge and experience. He employs Sherpa's (and pays them a fair wage !) whom are also very experienced trekkers and some have summited Everest !! they are very in-tuned into the needs (inc health needs, signs & symptoms of altitude sickness), informing us of the different peaks and opening to talking about their experiences summiting mount Everest. The weather was not in our favour for part of the trek. One morning...at 4am the cloud finally lifted; Mohan came and woke us all to share our first glance of mount Everest it was amazing. It is a well worn track to EBC and the key is to take it slowly and enjoy...live in the moment! Mohan always ensured we ate well, drank plenty of clean water & paid attention to everyone on the trek to ensure we remained healthy & safe in order to reach EBC. Mohan had arrange some touristy stuff in Kathmandu before our departure to Lukla...which was great and an opportunity to meet and get to know the group. I would recommend Mohan and his company Namaste Nomad !! I have subsequently booked a trip to Bhutan with Namaste Nomad :)

Trek to Everest Base Camp

"

My serious walking career began at the age of 60, when I trekked with Mohan of Namaste Nomad in Ladakh. Since then I have gone back to the Himalayas with him every year: Everest Base Camp, Langtang, Island Peak... Each year I've thought it was as high as I could go, and each year I've come away wanting more. This time I hoped to attain the summit of my ambitions - to climb a 6500 metre mountain, Mera Peak, at the age of 65. Mera, known as the highest trekking peak in the world, was hard. It was steep. It was exhausting. It was wonderful. With the help of Mohan's right-hand-man, Dawa, and Nerbu, a younger sherpa; in the company of three other incredibly supportive Irish trekkers; with the amazing aid of our porters; and with the help, in my case, of copious amounts of oxygen (!), I made it to the very top. Mohan and Dawa always believed in me and did everything in their power to get me to the top. I am immensely proud to have done this, and immensely grateful to Namaste Nomad for giving me the opportunity. Seize the day, people. You are capable of so much more than you think.

I am a professor at George Mason University. Namaste Nomad arranged our study abroad trip to Nepal (Conservation Storytelling). We had used another company the year before and have spent many years in Nepal. This company out performs anyone else in Nepal and anywhere globally. Mohan (the CEO) is extraordinarily knowledgable and works very hard to make sure everything is exactly as you need. The people that work for him are the absolute best available in country. Our guide had led multiple tours up Everest and I 100% trusted him with our lives. Our drivers were the same. In addition, Mohan cares very much about the world, the environment and the ability to share cultures and beliefs. And this is how his company is run. With responsibility and heart.

Great for Student Learning Trip!

I went to India and Ladakh with Namaste Nomad two years ago. I absolutely loved it, particularly the Himalayas. I therefore challenged myself to trek to Everest Base Camp with them. I did this last year and I can truthfully say that it was one of the most wonderful things I have ever done in my life. I am in my sixties, but the care and attention given me made everything not only manageable but immensely enjoyable. I've now signed up to climb Island Peak with Mohan and the team - my first serious Himalayan mountain. It's a prospect that fills me with a mixture of great excitement and a healthy dose of fear - but I know that I am in the safest of hands. Mohan and the team are watching you every step of the way. Safety is their number one priority, but they manage to make every trek great fun too. Bring it on!

Truly a high-point of my life

I travelled to Nepal with Namaste Nomad in March 2018 to trek in Langtang Valley. There were eleven in the group, along with Mohan, our guide. We spent a few days in Kathmandu to acclimatise. We visited three Unesco Heritage sites in the city. Then the trek began- an eight hour bus journey to the start of our adventure.. We trekked for eight days in the are which had been devastated by the earthquake in 2015. The trek was exhilarating, sometimes challenging- Mohan reminded us that we were in the Himalayas- always an adventure! He knew what we needed/wanted before we did! The team of sherpas and trainees were really excellent- they sorted our luggage every day... even checking under the beds in case we left anything behind; they cooked our delicious meals & served us- some of us are still dreaming of Dhal Bhat😋! They were at our side before we knew we needed a hand up or down loose rock🙄! After seven days trekking we returned to Kathmandu to wind down. It was a great experience, made special by the attention to detail of Mohan- a birthday party 🎉, a St Patrick's Day celebration to name a few. What a trip! I recommend Namaste Nomad unreservedly & will travel with Mohan again!
